This year I did manage to get them done early but it wasn't any less difficult! I did not intentionally get all the boys Star Wars socks.… Continue reading Stocking Stuffers

Black Maddness Haul Part 1

I talked about going out shopping on Black Friday. I thought I would share our “haul” from that day. I say “haul” because we really didn’t’ buy much that day.
